Why Should I Plan Ahead
Pre-planning is a matter of taking the time to think about – and record – your end-of-life desires. It’s a thoughtful gesture to those you love, and a way to let go of anxieties about the future. Once done, you can relax, knowing your plans are in the hands of reliable friends or family. It makes sense to think about the inevitable. The fact is we avoid the topic of death, dying and funerals until one day we have to plan a funeral or cremation. Taking the time now to record and let your family know your wishes in advance will guarantee your wishes are adhered to and ease the burden and stress of having your family made decisions for honoring your life. What are your preferences? Traditional Funeral with open casket, cremation, direct burial or perhaps anatomical gift donation. Do you want a Funeral Mass, a Memorial Service, a Celebration of Life, what location would your service be held at? Now, ask yourself this; does my family know of my wishes? Are my wishes recorded or have you pre-arranged or pre-paid for your services? Would your family know where to find your personal documents; such as bank account information, life insurance policy, stocks, bonds, honorable discharge paperwork, vital statistical information ? Now is the time to begin this process.

It’s All About Taking Control
Given time to consider it, you’ll quickly realize that pre-planning is all about ensuring that your wishes are known, so they can be acted upon when the time comes. Making the commitment to planning ahead:
- Is easy. There’s no health questionnaire or physical exam required. Absolutely everyone can make a pre-plan, and there is no waiting for return documents. The plan is completed, and put on file in our office.
- Lets your family clearly know your wishes.
- Relieves your family members of making very personal decisions on your behalf at the time of need.
- Can protect your family from the ravages of inflation. Your expenses can be covered when you need them to be, through a pre-payment plan.
Does Pre-planning Require Pre-payment?
The simple answer is just two letters: No. You can set plan to paper by simply recording your wishes, and leave it for your family to pay for your desired services at the time of your passing.
Or, you can protect you and your family from inflation, by pre-funding your plan. This ensures your expenses will be covered when you need them to be.
When you choose to pre-fund your final arrangements, your money is put in a state-approved trust account or top-rated insurance company until required. After your pre-plan is paid for in full, our price is guaranteed. You will never have to pay more for the items you have already paid for.
